The FDA notified customers on Friday that tuna sold in Texas, California and Oklahoma were at risk of infection.

Both product recalls were a result of the distributor's notification of the FDA regarding the positive test results of the products for Hepatitis A.

Contact your healthcare professional if you think you may have become ill from eating tuna, or if you believe that you have eaten any of the recalled frozen tuna within the last two weeks.
